...Come On Gang!

Time now for my second Introducing... post this week. Let's face it, I was always going to like Edinburgh's Come On Gang!. They share my fondness of exclamation, their songs are infectious wee buggers, and you just can't help but be impressed with their resumé - two critically acclaimed singles, "Wheels" (which you can hear on their MySpace) and "Start The Sound", have been backed up by starring at T in the Park, Rockness and SXSW, and supporting the likes of Mumford & Sons and White Lies.

If that's not all, new single "Fortune Favours The Brave" which will be released for free on 10th September is, quite possibly, the best single I've heard all year!

It too, like previous singles, ticks the infectious indie-pop box with its "doo doo doo, doo doo doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo" burying itself deep into your subconscious and creeping up on you when you least expect it to brighten up your day. The single will be the first from their upcoming debut album and if its anything to go by, the album will be a belter.

As I said, the single will be out on 10th September and will be launched that night at The Caves in Edinburgh with support from FOUND and Jesus H. Foxx. All details can be found on the Facebook events page., and details on the rest of their Scottish tour can be found below.
